Mahabalipuram, India



Bertrand Maudet offers a new photo essay on one of the major sites of ancient India: Mahabalipuram, also known as Mamallapuram, South India. This rocky chaos is marked by multiple traces of modern equipment, traversed and dotted rocks, cuttings with electric diamond saw, net split rocks, and other impossibilities with simple chisels made of copper or bronze, ie the only tools admitted by archeologists at that very ancient time.

It is obvious that a civilization developed technology, has left its traces in this awesome place. The sheer size of some blocks suggests that these giants, skillful to handle heavier loads. Or beings have antigravity …

What have they tried to do in this chaos? Is it a place of training, a workshop, a career? Anyway, precision fault, we can only classify it in the category of giants playgrounds.
